ModCloth map skirt

Shop the look: Over the years, I have really gotten quite good at purging things I don’t wear…and keeping a rather small wardrobe (I swear! 2 suitcases right now – that’s all), and literally only owning clothes and a few small mementos. Physical things just aren’t as important as travel right now. However, with that being said, I REALLY wish I could collect maps, globes…and on a random note, coffee mugs. These are things that every time I see them,… Read more »

star wars shirt

Shop the look: Ok, admittedly this post didn’t quite go according to plan. I had envisioned this outfit post being similar to my Harajuku outfit post…with a funky background, maybe some bright signs or graffiti…you know, something to blend in with my Star Wars outfit, haha. I was in Akihabara for these photos, on my way to a Maid Cafe (more on that in a second)…and this is an area known for its electronics stores and cosplay, so I didn’t… Read more »

Stylish Surprise dress

Shop the look:   New Orleans is fabulous, guys! I’m having a blast! And don’t worry these photos are not from The Big Easy…it’s much greener there, haha. I took these in Wisconsin just before I left. (And a reminder, you can see photos from my trip on Instagram.) And I’m sorry, I know this dress has been featured on my blog a ton already. However, I love, love, love it! And can you ever have too much of a… Read more »

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought… Read more »

Shop the look: Can you see me? I’m over here! This may not be the kind of “camouflage” clothing most folks are used to seeing, but I do blend into my surroundings quite well! (Well, except for my Jump From Paper purse. Haha.) I just can’t get enough of all the blooming trees…or flowered clothing items, for that matter. This top is pretty old..I’ve had it for quite a few years, but I still love breaking it out in the… Read more »

Pride & Prejudice sweater

Shop the look:   It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride & Prejudice is one of the best books ever written. I have been re-reading it at least once a year for about about the past 12 years. I am a really big Jane Austen fan, let’s just say. Pride & Prejudice is indeed my favorite book. And just like with my favorite movies, if I can find clothes that allow me to show off this love…you better believe… Read more »

Shop the look: It’s that time of year where dreams of flowers and warmer weather are dancing in our heads. However, there’s still snow on the ground, and there’s no end to the chilly temperatures in sight. This outfit is my attempt to brighten up my cold weather blues but still be warm and cozy. I love the embroidered peonies on this sweater and the bright reddish pink color. It’s a nice cardigan for spring, but it’s still warm enough… Read more »

There are so many things in this post I love, I’m having a hard time deciding where to start. From the flower crown to the Jump From Paper bag to my fluffy sweater…it all makes me so happy! OK, I’ll start with the Jump From Paper bag, just because a lot of people don’t believe it’s actually real when they see pictures. I can assure you it’s very real, and it is so awesome! My husband surprised me with it… Read more »
